Christmas window.

Following last weeks discussion for ideas of how we can bring Christmas to this years window at The Makery.We had the idea of creating something we can hang multiples of in the window to create a dramatic and eye catching statement. After the success of the previous cotton reel window display, we looked at the Christmas fabric and colours and came up with the idea of creating small heart shaped cushions and ways in which we could hang them.

Finally we decided upon hanging around 40 of these hearts, in 4 different sizes at different depths and heights.

 Now it was time to rummage threw the beautiful hand picked fabrics and ribbons they have at The Makery and get busy sewing!
Initial designs using the natural hessian fabric and the red and green colour scheme for the fabrics and ribbons.

Quick sketch of The Makery window, with an idea what the hanging hearts will look like.
